When fats, oils, and grease (FOG) enter the sewer, they create a variety of problems, such as sewer blockages and spills. This puts the health and safety of the public at risk. Grease interceptors have played an important role in preventing accumulated FOG from clogging sewer lines. A grease interceptor is a proven and effective grease collection device, which significantly reduces the amount of FOG entering the sewer.
Hydronic radiant floor systems pump heated water from a boiler through tubing laid in a pattern under the floor. In some systems, controlling the flow of hot water through each tubing loop by using zoning valves or pumps and thermostats regulates room temperatures.
Septic systems are underground wastewater treatment structures, commonly used in rural areas without centralized sewer systems. They use a combination of nature and proven technology to treat wastewater from household plumbing produced by bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry.
Installing a commercial gas pipeline involves a complicated process by which the pipe is run from the nearest gas main to the building. Proper terminals and meters are installed, and from there the line can be run throughout the building to serve whatever appliances require it.
Commercial plumbing relates to buildings such as hospitals, hotels, small and large businesses, multi-family units, high-rise office, and residential spaces. While plumbing typically functions the same in commercial, business, and residential spaces, there are vast differences in plumbing use, potential problems, as well as the types of plumbing fixtures and piping involved.
Cast iron pipe and fittings have been the backbone of drain, waste and vent plumbing systems throughout the world. The natural qualities of cast iron make it an ideal material for use in drain, waste and vent applications without the need for additional linings and coatings. Cast iron pipe and fittings also resist corrosion for solutions commonly found in these drain, waste and vent systems.
A boiler’s job is to turn water into steam, which is denser than air and lighter than water. Air doesn’t hold heat as well, and water is difficult to move, so steam is a good medium for transferring heat to where its needed.
